This time the film has a bigger star cast with Akshay Kumar and Asin as the protagonists and Mithun Chakraborty, Paresh Rawal, Raj Babbar and Himesh Reshammiya in other roles.
This is the eight film of the Khiladi franchise, which is the longest running film series in India. The last Akshay Kumar starrer Khiladi was Khiladi 420. Expectations has been building up for the film as it was well promoted and the songs are also doing well. Going by the reactions of the people on Twitter, it looks like people are loving the movie, in spite of the fact that there is nothing logical about its story.
An excited Khidali fan tweeted, “fublous movie ..in simple word khiladi is back ...#Khiladi786. Another Twitter user, who seemed to have got the tickets for the first show said, “Bumber (sic) Opening. Complete family entertainer.” There were some, however, who did not like the movie at all and tweeted, “people are ashamed of themselves for watching dis crap #Khiladi786 .. worst movie . It's better to skip movie(s) like dis.” These kind of voices were far removed in a stream of tweets, which was applauding the film, Akshay Kumar and also the other characters.
